EpiCollect+ – discontinued

Crowd2Map used to be run via EpiCollect+ platform, which allows locals to install an app on smartphones or tablets and register various resources and villages through a simple data collection form. By setting coordinates, attaching a photo and answering a few questions, each point can be registered in minutes:

2015-12-03 15.45.35  2015-12-03 15.45.59  2015-12-03 15.47.12  2015-12-03 15.47.36

The data is then sent to the central server, and all the data points can immediately be visualized on a map via the browser:

In December 2015, Janet took some donated tablets and smartphones to several schools in Tanzania and kicked-off the data collection. Several months past, we already have over 200 points!

[update 2016-04-10] We now have nearly 1500 points on EpiCollect+!
